In the once industrial town of Ruše, only 9 kilometres away from Maribor, a plan for the development of tourism was formed years ago. Natural conditions, the proximity of Pohorje forests, ski resorts, and the Drava River have contributed to the accelerated construction of tourist infrastructure.
In 2008, the plans were realized with the construction and opening of the first accommodation establishment in Ruše, the three-star Hotel Veter and the Vetrnica youth hostel.
The Hotel Veter is perfectly located, a step away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet still at the foot of Pohorje, not far from the new Pisker II ski resort with a new 6-seater chairlift.
The Hotel Veter got its name from the natural characteristics of the place in which it is located, the constant blowing of the northwest wind, which is a constant in weather forecasts.
The name “Veter” was also used as a synonym for movement, dynamics, as the Hotel Veter is a kind of foundation for the development of tourism in the municipality of Ruše, the driving force for the future.
With the new accommodation facility, the municipality of Ruše, which also includes the Areh ski resort with its new Pisker II piste, acquired 150 beds for guests of various types. You will be able to choose between accommodation in one of 37 double rooms, a youth hostel or one of five high-quality suites.
The special feature of the hotel is that it is adapted to its target groups.
Thus, among the double rooms we find rooms for athletes and rooms for business guests, in the youth hostel Vetrnica all young travellers, families and those who don’t want to lack comfort despite the favourable price find their accommodation; while apartments are suitable for those who want prestige and remoteness.
